bo- hi tanto

Recommended Posts

Here is a tanto i have just finished up. It is made from extra improved plow steel cable, actually 4 cables then folded a couple of times. It was clay coated and quenched in water. The blade length is 10 3/4 inches and the overall length is 14 1/2 inches. It is a beefy little blade being just under 1 3/4 inches wide at the base and a 1/4 inch thick on the spine tapering to the point. It is razor sharp and i don't think I have any finger prints left on my right hand from polishing. Here are some pics, sorry about the quality not very good at the whole picture taking thing.

WOW! That really doesn't cover it, but it is better than drooling on my keyboard.

I like I like.

My life is like shaving with a razor sharp machete. It's a bit awkward and I feel a sting every now and then, but in the end I'm happy with the results.

Thanks alot guys should have a matching sword in the works. Got a couple other katanas to finish first. The one will take a while since it has a 36 inch blade.
